British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday (April 9) the international community needed to strengthen its resolve to deal with those behind a reported poison gas attack in Syria.

Responding to a suspected poison gas attack on the rebel-held town of Douma on Saturday (April 7), May said countries backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government should be held to account along with the Syrian leader.

Speaking at a news conference in Stockholm with her Swedish counterpart Stefan Lofven, May said that if Assad’s regime was responsible for the suspected gas attack, it was another example of the “callous and brutal” way he is treating his people.

As international officials worked to try to confirm the suspected chemical attack on Douma, a Syria medical relief group said at least 60 people had been killed there and more than 1,000 injured in several sites.

The Syrian opposition blamed the suspected attack on government forces, who launched an air and ground assault on Douma, the last rebel-held town in the eastern Ghouta district, on Friday (April 6).
